The biggest drawback to "formal" donations (i.e. X per month) is that they continually pester you - either to increase your donations, or to donate for some new scheme or even selling your details,...

Too early to tell. They don't start broadcasting until February. Come back then and ask once people have had the chance to watch it and form an opinion

Sigh!
That's twice you've misquoted me. Go back and do it again. Maybe then you will understand what I wrote and then you'll be in a position to guess why I said it. Though we are making some, small,...

Well said. I can think of lots of reasons why people continually watch bad TV. However none of them are in any way complimentary to the people who do.
